What size of meatballs should I use?

Small meatballs work best for Italian Wedding Soup recipes.

Make your meatballs small or, if you have larger leftover meatballs, you may want to break them up!

Here are some ideas for meatballs you can make at home:

Instant Pot Swedish Meatballs

Instant Pot Turkey Meatballs

Instant Pot Chicken Meatballs

What type of Pasta is the best to use?

Use a small pasta, like orzo.

We used Pastina pasta for this Instant Pot Italian Wedding Soup recipe and recommend it.

Another favorite choice is Acini di Pepe, also called Peppercorn pasta.

What can I use instead of Spinach?

You can use other greens to make this delicious dish.

We love spinach, but other great choices are kale, escarole, endive, or even cabbage.

Can I make it vegan?

Yes! In order to do so, replace the chicken broth with vegetable stock and skip the meatballs.

Is it Gluten-free?

You can easily make this Instant Pot soup recipe gluten-free!

Use gluten-free Pastina, and when preparing your meatballs, make sure to either use gluten-free bread crumbs or remove them completely.

Is it Keto-friendly?

Well, to make this a low-carb soup recipe, omit the pasta and use more spinach instead.
